AsMA/IAAD Meeting 2022

The AsMA meeting this year was a joint Aerospace Medical Association, (AsMA) and Undersea Hyperbaric Medicine Society (UHMS) Meeting. The meeting was held May 21-27th at the Peppermill Spa and Resort in Reno, Nevada, boasted over 1600 attendees, and the venue was one of the best AsMA has had in recent years. The International Association of Aerospace Dentistry (IAAD) presented an Aerospace Dentistry panel on Wednesday May 25th and was well attended. Dr. Victor Lloro-Boda was able to make this meeting and present, coming all the way from Barcelona Spain. The IAAD business meeting was, held on Tuesday May 24 and could not meet quorum due to the inability of some of our international friends not being able to cross borders. However, a new member joined our organization at the business meeting “Captain Mark Pinsky”. Captain Pinsky is a Full-time International pilot, part time dentist, and an author that is involved with the mental wellness of pilots. Captain Pinsky is an active member of AsMA and look forward to working with him in the IAAD. We look forward to another successful meeting next year which will be held in New Orleans, LA, and with the easing of COVID travel restrictions should meet quorum next year.

Next year’s meeting is scheduled at the Sheraton, New Orleans, LA, May 21st- May 25th 2023. We look forward to a good meeting then, and hope to see everyone there!
